Golding, M: Legal Reasoning
In a blend of text and readings, Martin P. Golding explores legal reasoning from a variety of angles - including that of judicial psychology. The primary focus, however, is on the "logic” of judicial decision making. How do judges justify their decisions? What sort of arguments do they use? In what ways do they rely on legal precedent? Golding includes a wide variety of cases, as well as a bibliographic essay.
